Would need to play with it and try it myself when its cold, but i would be inclined to check out the glow plugs and maybe even have the injectors reset before playing with teh injector pump ,also fitting a non return valve in the fuel inlet line and one in the return in case the valves in the injector pump are starting to play up

I recently changed the head gasket after overheating. The car is not starting and emitting heavy smoke


How hot did the car get before you had to change the head gasket? If the car had extreme heat then it could have damaged the rings. The rings will collapse and allow oil to squeeze past and burn out of the exhaust causing the smoke. Also since the rings are collapsed the vehicle will have no compression hence the no start. First thing is do a compression check.

I just put a brand new radiator and radiator cap in my car and its still over heating and now its misfiring what could be causing this?


Did you bleed the cooling system? and check operation of the thermostat, which should have been done after fitting radiator before finishing by putting on radiator cap.
If not remove radiator cap when cold get vehicle warm and check thermostat operation, while bleeding any air pockets in cooling system and if no flow and bubbles or it starts to boil (shooting water) out of radiator the thermostat could be jammed or head gasket blown.
Sounds like it could be a blown head gasket. Get it hot again and miss firing, remove and inspect all spark plugs you may find a very clean spark plug indicating water entry into that cylinder or even water/coolant droplets in spark plug. You can also hold paper over spark plug holes and give the engine a quick crank over to see if any water comes out of cylinder while cooling system is still under pressure, or use radiator pressure tester to pressurize cooling system, wait 5-10 minutes and then crank over checking for water/coolant in cylinders. Another tool to check for blown head gaskets that cause overheating is a TK Head check, which sniffs the cooling system for evidence of exhaust fumes in cooling system.

My car start smoking very heavy white smoke an stop running


You've blown a head gasket. the white smoke is from the coolant getting into the
cylinders thru the faulty head gasket. The fact that it won't run tells you that so much
coolant is getting into the cylinder(s) that the engine can't function properly.
Fix: buy a new head gasket, take the head off the engine, and replace the gasket.

What's the difference between a blown head gasket and a blown intake gasket?


The head gasket goes between the block and the head, and seals the combustion process, and cooling water, and (if oil is pumped obove the heads to valve components) oil pressure.

Intake gaskets seal between the intake manifold and the head, and seal against intake vacuum, and in many cases, coolant.

A badly blown head gasket will so destroy compression in the cylinder that you can hear uneven cranking as that cylinder comes up on compression, kind of a “whir, whir, WHIR, whir, whir, WHIR, whir” with the capitalized whir being the engine spinning much faster due to no compression holding the starter back.

You will never be able to hear a problem with an intake manifold gasket until the engine actually starts to fire and/or run.

Engine overheated & shut down i let it cool down for 12 hrs. bled fuel system added water installed new coil engine turns over freely but no fire on 3 cylinders?


The fact that it needed water and you know have you no fire on a cylinder means you prabably blew a head gasket. Does it blow out steam when you start it from cold now. You will need to check compression on all cylinders and do a chemical block test for fuel in the coolant first in order to rule this out or in.
